Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT MAC COMPATIBLE Says "Works with MacBook Air, Chromebook or Ultrabook". Fails to mention that it ONLY works for MacOS upto 10.9. So this is not for anyone with a Mac newer than 2013, or anyone that has updated their OS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product !!! Apple sucks, get Windows ! I got this adapter a while ago and must really say that it works very well and well made. I don't understand why people complain about Apple compatibility ?!?! How about waking up and just getting a Windows computer like most of the world. You should complain on the Apple website instead. Apple users use Microsoft Office and other Microsoft tools already anyways, this is so annoying to read those complaints. Just get any other computer manufacturer, they are all running Windows anyways. There are so many features and convenience that I just don't ever want to miss and that includes that just everything works no matter what I buy for my computer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't buy for Mac! For Windows, it's A+! Don't buy it if you have newer Mac. It has crippled my WiFi on MacBook Air 2017 (High Sierra OS), I had to re-install the whole OS, to make it work again. The installer says: "This driver is for Mac OS X 10.7 or newer versions on the Intel-based Mac". Well mine is 10.13 and it's not working. On my Windows 10 PC, it's working beautiful. No installation needed, and I got up to 700Mbit/s connected to a USB 3 port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works awsome, no drivers need installed. This is awesome, just plug into usb port and connect ethernet cable. No drivers to install nothing to set up, it just works. I got 20 mbps download with usb 2.0 ports. This is the max speed I am paying for. I am happy with this plug and play product. I needed this since my on board ethernet chip died! I do use Mint 17.3, I am not sure what the disc is for that comes with the product, maybe a free Frisbee?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works like a charm I really dont know why ppl are saying it is not working with mac, it is flawless with el capitan and sierra as well, both (air and mbp tested). I didn't expected 1gig real throughput, i was able to gain 500+mbps which (obviously plugged in usb3 port), that all, I really recommend it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from OS X Driver Support It has been at least 3 months since the last review and there is still no working driver for 10.11. The hyperlink on the support page does not work and nothing else comes up on searches. The linked site could be down due the New Years celebration but that is no excuse for the lack of driver support since 10.11 has been availabe for some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised, right out of the box. Lesson... don't buy Mac, burn fossil fuels and pray for more quality beach front with the rise of the oceans
